                            Recommended specs for Anno 1800 is a GTX 970 or RX 480, but it ran like crap? Hey, I'm not going to disable SLI because its not supported, this is an opportunity to buy overkill parts because I can.

                                                  I can vouch for the fact a running PC case losen screws in your case. I noticed a rattling in my case, it drove me nuts, I tried dampening the sound, tightening case screws but I never thought it was a motherboard screw. Sure enough a motherboard screw was loose, just dont tighten it while the PC is motherboard now has a burnt mounting hole lol.

                                                          DJI Tello-s are expensive toys with crappy motors - those will broke after a month of regular use or even faster if you want to fly this thing nearly every day. One of cause why I don't have any quadcopter with brushed motors anymore. They suck.
                                                          Would be more impressed to see new gaming rig build based on Ryzen7 or Ryzen9 CPU.
